There is joy in heaven

Full Text

1. All glory to the Saviour's name,
A sinner is forgiven;
A wand'rer has returned today,
And there is joy in heaven.

Chorus:
Glory, glory,
There is joy in heaven,
There is joy in heaven,
A wand'rer has returned today,
And there is joy in heaven.

2. 'Tis thro' the Father's wondrous gift,
The "Rock" for mortals riven,
That wand'rers may return today,
And cause such joy in heaven. [Chorus]

3. Another comes, all praise to God!
Yes, comes to be forgiven;
What joy on earth the sight affords,
And O, what joy in heaven! [Chorus]

4. And others, too, for whom our Lord
In agony has striven,
May come and freely be received,
And freely be forgiven. [Chorus]
